Sri Lanka, in reply, chased down the score in 7.1 overs. They would be happy to see Kusal Perera getting back to form. After enduring low scores in the first two games, he played an unbeaten 33-run knock off 24 balls to guide his team home. That knock would have given him a lot of confidence and it should keep Sri Lanka in good stead.
